  1. Factory reset again with pinhole and install the latest firmware over the top. Reset again then test. If the problem remains I would be thinking of RMA.
  2. Did you reset the router using the reset option in the software or the rear pinhole method? don’t use the software reset, hold the rear pinhole in for around 20 seconds. This will clear the NVram properly. Don’t use a saved config, you need to setup as new. if you then reboot and it fails to remember your previous setting ie. it goes through the setup I personally would RMA the unit.
  3. Unifi tends to have huge storage, I’m using nearly 2gigs of storage with 1.3TB of traffic which hold the logs and all the info. To have such in depth statistics might mean they need to be cleared on the XR routers monthly as they don’t hold enough memory and even then if you have a busy household with many devices it might be just too much for a domestic router. There’s also the issue that all the info is lost on a reboot and that includes all info from logs where as Unifi keeps it all. the only way round it is to use external storage but I’m not sure is that’s possible. It will be a nice feature though to see your usage so definitely looking forward to that.
  4. Any update on how it’s going 😊
  5. Gaming/voice is WMM which is part of the IEEE 802.11.
  6. Let’s keep it friendly, it’s a great thread where everyone is helping each other and by doing so everyone benefits with a better online experience which makes this community stand above all others.
  7. Duma is accessed via a browser. Im guessing you already know that via your previous posts but do you mean 3.0 beta?
  8. The modem is invisible, you will need to reset the XR500 and it should detect the internet on setup and you just add the credentials and away you go. This way you are not messing with the BT router, you know the chipset too which if memory serves me right could be several inside the BT router. one big plus is that the BT router if restarted as it’s the modem will reboot that and too many daily reboots can see line syncs drop. So the XR500 will handle the connection and you don’t need to log or or do anything with the HG612. Remember to turn on the HG612 and allow it a couple of mins to fully boot up and then plug in the XR and reset the XR and do the setup.
  9. Hi have you altered the DHCP and IP address. If so you need to be on auto and renew it if you have altered it manually ie looking at stats on a modem for example.
  10. Hi The geo filter now helps you find the best servers any other queries regarding your question you will have to searched on other forums as this forum is for support.
  11. Hi and welcome. I don’t think it’s available for the XR500 yet but don’t worry there’s PingPlotter which will help you find the best settings. Best to use a wired connection from pc/Mac to router when running PingPlotter. are you using the beta version of 3.0? What is your isp speeds that you receive? Is CC on all the time and a pic of your QoS page will help too. What equipment is the XR500 connected too and how is it connect? is this wired or WiFi you are seeing the spikes on. the more info the quicker we can see why you are getting such high spikes.
  12. Did you perform a factory reset using the rear pinhole method after updating? Don’t use a saved profile either, set the router up as a fresh install.
  13. I’ve never used the BT router that was supplied years back, the HG I use was supplied by BT from the start and I had the old Apple router. The XR500 I’ve got ran fine when connected to the HG as has all the other routers I’ve had. Prefer modem as it matches my cabinet and I know the chipset. The only issue with BT was when they had issues with spikes if you stream Netflix or any streaming service which had a massive thread on their forums but before Covid they did say they were rolling out a fix but no one really had an explanation what was going on. https://www.pingplotter.com/fix-your-network/getting-started there’s a guide there but use a wired connection and run it and see what happens, you can post a pic here too. You want a nice flat path and a low round trip. So say you start the test and set your CC to 70% both ways you can see how it performs when you run speed tests or you try to saturate your connection.
  14. That’s what I said but I could have worded it better. you are changing it so you have a few ip addresses given to you. That’s why when you change your address it drops the test you try. So now you know you can’t stop traffic to your router what are your concerns now regarding the possibility of such an attack? What made you try this in the first place, was it something you and your friend came across and you wondered how to stop a DDoS attack? I would steer clear of the websites that offer this, you don’t want to invite issues as you limited addresses. At the end of the day it’s going to be mighty rare to be DDoS but you could ask your isp what they offer if any protection like cloudflare claims. Personally I’ve never had issues in all the years I played apart from the ones that hit services like Sony. just insure you have the router locked down and your network is clean of issues.
